Suitable for individuals who are qualified drivers but have not driven for a considerable amount of time. Some people may just wish to increase their confidence in a specific for example, night driving, reversing or parking.
Initially driving on a motorway may appear unnerving and fearsome. Motorway lessons lasting 2 hours will include:
Pass Plus Lessons
The Pass Plus course may be undertaken after passing the driving test. It will improve your driving skills ahead of the basic learner level and will assist in reducing the costs of car insurance. The Pass Plus Lessons are comprised of at least 6 hours of training and include specific modules on the following:
A certificate is issued by the DVSA after passing the Pass Plus course
Pass the UK driving theory test online, first time with Theory Test Pro - fully licensed from the DVSA.
Practice online for your driving theory tests with full access to all the licensed DVSA test material.
The full test question bank, hazard perception video clips and online Highway Code.
Pass first time with visual aids to guide your learning.
Adaptive learning tracks where you are struggling and develops a programme of future practice questions to test your knowledge.
You can then learn at your own pace with questions direct from the Driving and Vehicle Standards Agency.
The test will last between 35-49 minutes and consists of three parts:
Vehicle safety checks
The test commences with an eyesight check. A number plate must be able to be read at a minimum distance of 20.5 m in good daylight. If a candidate fails this the driving test will not continue. Annabel will check a pupil's eye sight at the start of the first lesson.
Vehicle Safety Checks
The examiner will ask two vehicle safety check questions, often referred to as "Show Me/Tell Me" questions. These are basic safety checks that a driver should carry out to ensure the vehicle is safe for use before each journey. Some checks may involve the pupil opening the bonnet to identify where fluid levels should be checked. However candidates will not be asked to touch a hot engine or physically check fluid levels. There is no need to be concerned about this section, as you will be well prepared for it in your lessons. Annabel is also a qualified mechanic and will easily get each pupil through this phase.
During the driving test, the examiner will ask the candidate to either follow a sat nav or follow road signs for 20 minutes. The test routes are designed to be as uniform as possible and will include a range of typical road and traffic conditions, including faster flowing roads. During the test, the examiner will ask the candidate to demonstrate on of the following manoeuvres:-
Drive into a bay on the left or right and then reversing out of a bay.
Reverse bay park to the left or right.
Reverse parking by a car on the left.
Pull up on the right. Reverse back 2 car lengths and pull away safely.
(One in 3 candidates will also be asked to conduct a controlled stop).
A candidate may also be asked to demonstrate an emergency stop exercise.
A pupil may make up to 15 driving faults and still pass the test (16 or more results in failure). However, if a candidate commits one serious or dangerous fault, it will result in a failure. If at any time the examiner considers the candidate to be a danger to other road users, the test will be stopped.
At the End of the Test
When the driving test has finished, the examiner will tell the candidate the result. The candidate may request feedback on the test from the examiner, who will discuss the candidates performance. The pupil may invite their instructor to attend this debrief if they wish.
Annabel will have taken the pupil through a mock test before taking the driving test, so they will fully understand what is expected on test day. The aims of the mock tests are to prepare the pupil for their test day and assist in easing their nerves.
